Poem 255 – If I were to Fall in Love

If I were to fall in love
If I were to fall
My lips wouldn’t linger at all.
I would hide all of my pain
Hide my secret, hide my shame
If I were to fall in love.

If I were to fall in love,
If I were to fall
I would not show it at all.
I wouldn’t sing a silly song
Or wonder all day long
If you could also fall in love.

If I were to fall in love,
If I were to fall
I would keep it hidden from you
I’d ignore those long caresses
And all those lengthy gazes
If I were to fall in love.

Dear readers,

This poem, in my head, has a tune – it sounds rather like Nat King Cole, to be honest. It’s one of the few poems that’s come to me while I’ve been half-asleep, leading to a horrific moment of ‘ah, must write this down before I forget!’

Kind regards,

The Hapless Neo-Romantic
